All my tours are with transportation. Only walking tours are not available.
You are required to wear a mask. Please bring your own hand sanitizer, although we will make breaks for washing your hands.
Churches restrict visitors during services. Gentlemen have to remove hats when entering a church.
All my tours include transportation with a minivan and a driver. I don’t drive when I’m guiding because I want you to have my full attention.
